From the pages to the big screen to Banana Republic: Anna Karenina gets the sartorial treatment
The upcoming release of Anna Karenina has generated some major buzz, particularly with the release of the film’s trailer, which showcases stunning costumes from the silver screen adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s famed romantic tragedy. As if that weren’t amazing enough, Banana Republic has announced their upcoming Anna Karenina-inspired holiday capsule collection, which will stores and online at the end of October.
The collection—which was style by the film’s Academy Award-nominated costume designer, Jaqueline Durran—features military details, sleek leather accessories and to our delight, lots and lots of faux fur. We love the au courant burgundy that runs throughout both the men’s and women’s collections, and the heavy knits will be perfect for the cool Canadian temperatures that are sure to hit around the same time as the collection. For those of you who aren’t daring enough to wear a massive faux-fur hat, simple yet elegant cocktail dresses and classic costume jewellery will also be available for all your holiday soiree needs.
